J'adore Card Set
A few girl friends' birthdays are coming up soon (today and next month) so this weekend I whipped up these cards inspired by my best pal. She loves classic french chic and anything feminine and romantic - hopefully she approves!
The first one is for the inspiring friend in question. We were just talking the other weekend about dress forms - isn't the pearl necklace fab! The sentiment translates to: I adore your style. Neither of us speak French, which is probably silly but I think she'll appreciate it.
The next card is for another fabulously fashionable friend who I don't get to see often enough. I was so excited to find that chipboard piece that perfectly matched the shape of the flower rub-ons and I misted it using a combo of Maya Pink Lemonade and TA Vintage Pink to match the shade as well.
I really like this final card too as I am a big fan of silhouettes. The background was originally white, which just seemed so bright. Since everything was already glued in place, I painted on some mist in Buttercream but def regret it. Have not found a good use for that color mist yet! But everything else makes me happy - the doilies, bow, crown and jewels - all so girly.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend (USers). Christmas season, here we come!
